Angels With Dirty Faces!

(I’m not saying! I don’t want anybody’s Mother getting a call from Harper Valley Social Services!)

 You know kids don’t worry much about their appearance. They just run wild and have fun. It’s their job! But it is Mom’s job to worry about it, unless she wants a curt telephone call and a sit-down “meet ‘n greet” with Harper Valley social services, courtesy of a filed report by that old bitty next door who’s plate glass window was broken out by an errant baseball. You all know the type!

 Now I’m not one to judge, but from the looks of it, these tyke’s have been playing for over 40 years already without a bath. I’m not getting all up in any ones parenting skills now, but let’s just face it, I think it was time they cleaned up a bit, don’t you!

 Skipper, Skooter and Ricky definitely needed, we’ll say,  a little grooming. Skipper is the oldest and probably knows a little more than Skooter or Ricky on the subject. But if she is setting an example for them, it’s getting lost in translation somewhere along the way!

 Not in too bad of shape, Skipper basically just needed a good bath and her hair done. Skooter on the other hand was really going for that urchin in the street “Les Miserables” vibe.  Ricky, well he’s just another story altogether. I swear when he walked in to the spa, I thought he was a little lost hobo. All that was missing was a cigar stub hanging from his lips and a bottle of Hooch!

 All in all, it was an easy job. Mom dropped them off and told Vera she had to run a few errands. Vera then led them straight to me cause she didn’t want any part of it. I guess Mama sort of got that two-for-one deal going on today, grooming services AND babysitter all in one! I didn’t mind though. They were little angels. But I do hope one of those errands she’s running involves a stop at Sears for some new outfits! Or at least a box of Tide from Kroger’s! I’m just saying!

 Well, here they are, all spruced up and ready for their class pictures!

Skipper, Skooter and little Ricky! Now ain’t they sweet!

This cute trio came in with little dirty face’s only a Mother could love! They each of course had a date with Mr. Bubble! They all were given a thorough Pink Bubbles Beauty Bath for Face & Body. Skipper and Skooter both had their hair washed, conditioned and set. Skooter was given pretty red ribbons for her pigtail’s. She also received a fresh lip paint. Ricky was also given a fresh lip paint as well as some touch-ups on his hair. Now it’s your turn Mom, bring on that Tide!

  1. Hi!
    I found your website on accident and let me say I am impressed! I am only thirteen years old, and most people don’t want to sell me their vintage barbies because they think I want to play with them. Well actually, I don’t! I’m just a young collector and I have quite the collection after searching around during quarantine. I just got my hands on a lot of 3 Skippers, blonde brunette and ginger, 1 brunette Skooter, and 2 Midge dolls, one ginger, and the other blonde with TEETH! I was excited about that one because now I have cases for them to go in! Anywho, I just saw those pictures above and 3 of my vintage dolls need some TLC considering that they all came from yard sales. Ginger Midge especially! Her poor curls are all gone and her hair was stuck in a ponytail for God knows how long. I’m nervous to try my general technique on them (washing conditioning, styling, then setting with hot and cold water) because I’m not sure if that will damage them since they’re vintage. And well, quite a lot has changed for barbie since the ’60s. I was wondering how you did this and if you could give some advice?? I hope you will respond!
    Thanks!
